  • Felt fairly safe due to lock on the room door, availability of locker inside the room for storing valuables, and a locker system in the lower level to store suitcases prior to check-in so I could sight-see for a few hours. It was reassuring that a local police precinct office was less than half a block away. Be prepared to carry your luggage up one or two flights of steep stairs. Simple but filling breakfast. Internet only available until 11:00 PM. Room air conditioners are a huge plus!

  • I think it is great that there is a simple, reasonable alternative to the high priced NYC hotels. I am NYC to be in the city, not to sit around my hotel. The hostel had everything I needed.

  • It was an okay Hostel, nor good nor bad. A little bit pricey but then again it is New-York. There was no A/C in the rooms which made my sleep uncomfortable. Wifi only in common area, theres none in the rooms, thats the only thing that could be improved.

  • The isn't a ventilator and air conditioning in the room, the noise of the street almost don't let you sleep. The staff are very kind.
